Hollywood Comes to Wexford

4Every year, the Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation hosts a themed charity gala and auction- this year’s theme was Hollywood, complete with bright lights and a celebrity guest.

On Friday, November 4, the Foundation rolled out the red carpet for 140 Wexford members, along with special guest Tom Berenger and his wife, for an unforgettable evening. Tom Berenger, well-known for his roles in Major League, Inception, Last Will, The Big Chill, Betrayed and The Dogs War (just to name a few!) took photos and mingled with the members throughout the night, as they all enjoyed dinner, a live and silent auction, live music by Deaz Guyz and dancing.

Much thanks to their generous sponsors, donations and the Wexford members, the preliminary net proceeds from that evening were just over $68,000.

If you are interested in making a contribution to the Foundation, or if you would like to recommend a charity for consideration, please contact Jim Hicks, Chairman of the Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation, at chairman@wexfordfoundation.com.

Wexford, Wexford toil & trouble

The Club’s a spooky sight with cauldrons that bubble.

1This past week, we were in full Halloween spirit.

Our week began with Wexford’s ETC (Event & Travel Club) Murder Mystery Dinner. Our members dressed their parts as they searched through the Clubhouse for clues on who committed the crime and how. This real-life game of Clue was a most memorable evening for all who attended and participated.

We finished the week with our annual Spooktacular party – plus a different twist on the traditional Trick-or-Treat through the neighborhood. Given the amounts of remaining roadside debris, instead of having our children go door-to-door, we invited them to the Clubhouse to go Trunk-or-Treat.  We invited our members to park their decorated car(s) OR golf cart(s) at the Clubhouse and passed out candy from there. It wasn’t only a safer option for our children, but it brought friends and neighbors together to mix and mingle while the children went from car to cart.

Following our Trunk-or-Treat, we hosted our ever-popular Spooktacular, featuring bounce houses, carnival games, a dance party and a ‘Goblin’ good buffet for adult ghosts and mini-ghouls of every size.  This is one of our most popular events by frightfully far!!

Hilton Head Named Top 10 U.S. Island

conde_nast_traveler_logoCondé Nast Traveler named Hilton Head Island the No. 3 Island in the U.S. in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards (falling behind two Hawaiian islands). According to the online listing, our beaches, shopping and restaurants “could compete with major cities.”

travelleisure-logoEarlier this year Travel + Leisure magazine readers voted Hilton Head Island the best island in the continental United States, noting our “pristine courses and local wildlife.”

We are truly lucky to call this place home.

Weathering the Storm

Last week (October 8, 2016), our Island forever changed with the devastation left by Hurricane Matthew. Despite the downed trees, debris and power/water outages, our community has come together with an outpour of love, compassion and strengthened sense of community.

Neighbors are meeting for the first time, assisting with cleanup efforts and helping those who are unable. We thank all our members, neighbors and friends for their support as we continue our cleanup efforts.

Remembering a Legend, Arnold Palmer

On October 20, 2011, in conjunction with Arnold Palmer’s return to the island for the grand opening of Wexford’s Arnold Palmer Signature Course, Hilton Head Island Mayor Drew Laughlin proclaimed the day to be “Arnold Palmer Day.”

According to Mayor Laughlin, “Our town and community are committed to excellence in all that we do…and nothing exemplifies this better than Arnold Palmer and Wexford’s new golf course.

That day was incredibly special to all here at Wexford, as we greeted Palmer and welcomed him into our community. As we look back at his life, we cherish the time he spent here, and will cherish those memories for forever.
